More useful AMEB examination tips!

Playing your Pieces by Memory:

It's not an official rule that any of your pieces should be presented from memory on the exam , but the truth is , Students than can play their pieces by memory really do demonstrate that they have mastered their pieces, and it does make a difference to the overall impression that you give to an examiner.

Having said that , I don't believe you can receive any additional marks for playing anything from memory , so if its not possible , or if you cant guarantee that you can play your pieces perfectly without the music...its probably safer to play with the music than risk a performance with mistakes or memory lapses.

Regardless of whether you do end up performing your pieces by memory or not , you MUST take all the music in with you anyway.
